Next up is my Torus XT.

Lovely condition frame; forks currently undergoing a minor repair.

I think I'll take this one close to a stock rebuild:

Great parts sourced, mainly from helpful fellow RBers. Still looking for, VGC:

Bar ends: X-Lite L-bend, silver. One pair in hand, mintier pair needed
Tyres: Tioga psycho K tyres needed, Psycho II as a plan B

Thanks for reading....

Very very nice ! I used to have a ‘99-2000 RSP Ti which I decked out in Sachs Quarz/plasma synchros and Paul’s. Certainly not catalogue spec.
I’m really liking this XT spec with the forks - look forward to the finished article

All of a sudden there are two Trimmel forked bikes on 97 Mtb forum!
I think if you travel through the Dynatech information thread you’ll find what you’re after! viewtopic.php?f=1&t=91636

Great, thanks, will keep trawling. The catalogue spec is pretty vague...

Nice, the XT shifter/brake will be M737.

Bits and pieces slowly arriving, some harder to find than expected for my close-to stock build.

Decent saddle sourced and on the way....

Tyres proving difficult (Psycho K), three nice alternatives on the way to see me right in the short term.

Rear mech and cassette on the way.

Front mech a little elusive, ebay alerts fully activated.

Forks undergoing repair, and new titanium handlebar on a plane/ship from the US, with thanks to Dan

Brakes/shifters causing a dilemna. I want a near-stock build with the 737 brifters, but i dont like them, I've always been a gripshifter....what to do?

Bar ends, i have 2 decent xlite options whilst i continue the search for the stock item...
